  • Super Mario Bros.

    Super Mario Bros.

    ★★½

    A terrifying vision of Donald Trump's America.

    Watched on sumptuous 35mm film at Metrograph, the way this classic was meant to be seen.

  • Knight of Cups

    Knight of Cups

    ★★½

    If nothing else this movie may have illuminated for me why Malick is (by all accounts) such a big fan of Zoolander. For what is Knight of Cups but another tale of a man's stumbling search through a neon haze of outré high fashion and vacant pop culture artifice for some sign that there's more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking?

    "Don't be distracted by the beautiful celebrities," indeed.

    Both movies even feature cameos by Fabio! I think I'm really onto something here...
